Club Discounts, New Dates/Times @ Avery Pt Pool
« on: January 14, 2011, 03:59:15 PM »

We are now able to offer a $5 discount to each pool session for CLUB MEMBERS IN GOOD STANDING.
NOTE:  There are new times and dates for sessions in February and March.  These are intended to minimize conflicts with other pool sessions.

WHERE:  University of Connecticut At Avery Point, Groton - 1084 Shennecossett Rd. Groton, CT 06340
Take I-95 north/south t o Exit 87, Clarence Sharp Highway. Continue on Clarence Sharp Highway; at second traffic light turn right. At the next traffic light, which is Benham Road, turn left. Proceed for about 1.5 miles to the entrance of the Avery Point Campus.  After you enter the campus, turn left at your first stop sign.  The pool is on your left in the large gymnasium building across the parking lot.
WHEN: Saturdays on Dec 11th, Jan 8th, Jan 22nd from 2p-5p
           Saturdays on Feb 12th and 26th from 3:30p-6:30p
           Saturdays on March 12th and 26th from 2p-5p
You can load in starting a half hour before each session and must finish load out within a half hour after the session ends.  That's three full hours of "on the water" time.
HOW MUCH:  Either paddle on your own or take a class.
-  Open Pool:  $25 with your boat.  Rental boats and gear are available for an additional $10.  Please call ahead to reserve equipment.
Youth up to 18 years old can attend open pool session for half price.  They must be able to swim competently, wet exit and be accompanied by a guardian.

Class covers bracing strokes, paddle float, Eskimo assists, and T rescues.
NOTE:  Classes include access to the pool for the entire session. Additional ACA certified instructors are available for groups or families but must be prearranged ahead of time.  The only prerequisites for pool session classes are some kayak paddle experience and the ability to swim competently.  Sessions include access to men's and woman's locker rooms, bathrooms and showers.  All boats must be clean prior to coming into building.  Check the Connyak bulletin board at connyak.org the morning before sessions for last minute cancellations.  Boats and instructional time are limited so please contact us early to reserve; first come, first serve on the day of the session.
Extra certified instructors are available for families and larger groups. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
See you on the water soon,
